    I am considering buying a samsung gear fit 2 that is in demo/retail mode. I want to use the watch in normal mode, but haven't found any info online about the gear fit 2. There is some stuff about taking a gear s3 out of demo mode, so I think it's possible. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Why is it in that mode?

    I'm assuming because it was a retail demo the store no longer needed so they're selling it. There are posts about how to put it in retail mode, but none about going from retail to normal.

    Why can't the store put it back to normal?

    I don't know. It's being sold as is. If I buy it, I have to take it out of retail mode. So my question is still the same, does anyone know how to do this?

    Pardon me for prolonging the thread without actually offering a definite answer, but my understanding is that a code or password is needed for that, which would obviously only be known by the store. I can't imagine any store selling a device locked in retail mode, since it would be unusable for the buyer. Is this a well-known, reputable high-street retailer?

    Seriously doubt the carrier didn't take out of demo mode before "selling."

    It's being sold as-is online. I honestly don't know anything about it or it's history. As it's a samsung gear fit 2, it doesn't have a carrier. I've read about needing to replace the firmware, but haven't found any more details. I've also read that retail mode just shows different screens continuously and prevents the watch from sleeping. There is hardly any info out there at all on this watch, that's why I'm here. If nobody knows anything about this, I understand. Thanks for your time.
